The Easter bunny visited Henry Bradley Nursery and Infant School and youngsters had an ‘eggcellent’ time hunting for colourful eggs in the grounds around the school.

The fun day also saw the children come to class dressed in their brightest clothes and a giant Easter bunny also turned up for a surprise visit.

Headteacher Tracy O'Malley praised the pupils and said they each took home a chocolate Easter egg.
